Start of insurance

Insurance starts on the date applied for. Insurance coverage starts on the same date, at the earliest on the day we receive your application at our office (0:00 am).

End of insurance coverage

Insurance coverage expires automatically on the agreed date. The maximum insurance duration is 2 years, provided that the insurance has been taken out within the first month after entry. The insurance extension beyond this period is not possible.

Waiting period

There are no waiting periods if you purchase the insurance policy within one month after entering Germany. In case of a later purchase, the waiting period for the health insurance policy is one month. The waiting period can be waived if the insurance policy immediately follows a previous insurance. In this case, please hand in a copy of such previous insurance together with your application. The waiting period does not apply in case of an accident or medical help aiming to prevent acute danger to the insured person’s life.
